After the GCPH, I went for a Simaudio Moon LP 5.3 with outboard power supply. It was a large step up from the GCPH. Now I use a Modwright SWP 9.0 SE, with upgraded power supply, which is better yet.
Good luck, regards,
Good luck, regards,
I just upgraded to a Pass Labs XP15. Immense improvement in every way. Liquid three dimensional enveloping soundstage with incredible bass control. I always thought the GCPH was the weak link in my system and I now have no doubt. The more I work on fine tuning my system the more I am convinced all components are important but the most important are those at the heart of the system--the preamp and phono pre. Don't scrimp on those. They are hardest to get right and make a huge impact simce they handle low level signals and have to interface with the rest of the system Good luck and enjoy the ride.
Pbnaudio your product could be the greatest but in the way you promotion the item doesn't match my views of business.
let others discover how good the Liberty is instead of yourself saying great things or encouraging to buy.
I had seem the same post by you in any phono advice threads,
good luck but not with me, i will continue my search.
Have never heard the Liberty (and am extremely happy with the SimAudio Moon 5.3 with external power supply I just replaced by P75 with), but based on reviews and specs it does certainly seem worth taking a close look at. I have no problem with a manufacturer suggesting you look at his product. He makes no claims for it in this forum, and identifies himself as the manufacturer (if he hadn't done that it would be a problem in my book).
Anyway, loads of great phono stages out there. Most important is to try them in your system to see what works best in your particular rig.
I sent my my GCPH to the Parts Connexion to be modified. What I got back was a night and day improvement. After I got bored with that, I took the next step and added a Bob's Devices Cinemag 1131 step up transformer. This again took my GCPH to another level. I have no intention of trading this in for a Chinook, XP15 or anything else in the near future.
